I suppose the following video will be understood as a “peaceful” protest by Muslims who claim to believe in a “religion of peace.” However, this is exactly a demonstration of the kind of disregard and disrespect Islam has for the Western civilization. Watch as armed vandals smash and destroy dozens of headstones of Allied and Italian service members who were laid to rest in a Word War II cemetery in Benghazi. They then had the audacity to post their desecration online.
CBS reported the incident, which took place on February 24 and 26, 2012.
The U.K. Foreign Office said that on February 24 and 26 hundreds of headstones in two British military cemeteries in Benghazi were vandalized. Markers identifying Christian or Jewish war dead were damaged or broken.
In video re-posted on YouTube the men (including the videographer) are seen kicking over or smashing headstones. One man takes a hammer to a ceremonial Cross of Remembrance.
Men are heard saying of the dead, “They are dogs.”
The BBC reports that a group of older people intervened during the attack on the British Military Cemetery, preventing further desecration.
As Bradlee Dean has pointed out, young people in America, once they understand why these men gave their lives and understand that it was to protect the freedoms God has given, then they would openly be opposed to such desecration. Where is the outrage over this? There obviously was none from the Obama administration, just like there was no outrage from the Obama administration over the burning of Bibles in Afghanistan, but there was an apology for the burning of Korans.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
